Catarina Miranda holds a bachelor’s degree in Applied Biology and a master’s degree in Molecular Genetics from the University of Minho. During her master’s thesis, she exploited the potential of yeasts to accumulate lipids by using innovative methodologies.
During 18 months, Catarina worked as researcher in the AQUAVAL project at UCP-ESB.
Catarina is a PhD student in Biotechnology at UCP-ESB, and her work is related to the use of AGS in the treatment of saline wastewater and emerging pollutants.
